71. Phallic Worship in the Modern World [Journals] [Aeon]
... potency and the life force. In fact, to Hindus, the very sexual act symbolizes the unity of the cosmos. Some years back, one of those familiar cement, bullet-shaped, four-foot high traffic barriers we all see blocking our way through certain streets was unceremoniously dumped in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, in a glen behind the world-famous Japanese Tea Garden. And then, as if through a sudden urge, in October of 1993, someone decided to turn this cement barrier into a religious shrine that has drawn pilgrims from as far away as India itself. Why? Because, like the icy stalagmite at the Amarnath cave-shrine, the barrier was seen to resemble a phallus. ...
... philosophers, who will be produced naturally by that nation because it has the correct political beliefs. However ridiculous that may appear, it did seem to infest Nazi propaganda in the 1930's, not to mention the ideological war between Russia and the U.S . in the 1950's. Now consider 1940. The Germans flooded over Europe and the Japanese over East Asia, but, more specifically, the fascist attacks came most memorably from the sky. The Japanese dive-bombers in China and the German dive-bombers in Europe brought destruction screaming straight down from the heavens, and then, in an imitation of the mythical feats of a Marduk or Venus, waves of cataclysmic destruction in the form of ...
73. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... some of the entries), though admittedly only occasionally. Prospective readers are also warned that the apparently comprehensive name index included in the present edition proves not to be entirely reliable and could do with some revision. Michael Reade CATASTROPHES IN THE EARTH'S HISTORY by I. A. Rezanov MIR Publishers, Moscow, 1980. Translations into English, Japanese, German, Bulgarian and French. This paperback, despite its title and a break with conformity in the second chapter, proves a disappointment to anyone hoping for a Velikovskian approach to catastrophes. The author, a Russian geologist, rarely strays far from the orthodoxies of his western peers, although one is left with the impression that most ...
74. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... approximately linear way when close to equilibrium." Just how many systems, currently only understood as linear processes, are in fact non-linear but presently close to equilibrium? And how many of them would be tipped over into wild and unpredictable behaviour by catastrophe conditions? Neutrino Puzzle source: New Scientist 21.4 .88, p.30 Japanese scientists have provided confirmation that only a third of the neutrinos from the Sun that "should" reach the Earth actually do arrive. This implies that "physicists do not properly understand some of the processes in nuclear physics". Note, they won't admit they could be completely wrong. Mammal Rethink source: New Scientist 21.4 ...
75. The Rebirth of Nature [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... comes from a letter giving the results of the tests to the participants. In it, Sheldrake goes on to say that two other tests, at the Psychology Departments at Oxford and Gottingen Universities, have recently given more encouraging results: the Oxford test involved discriminating real from false English words, and the Gottingen test discriminating between real and altered Japanese characters (in the Hiragana script). None of this, of course, could appear in The Rebirth of Nature because the book was already in the process of publication when the tests were carried out. In fact, it contains very little about testing for morphic resonance, and nothing that wasn't included in Sheldrake's earlier books. Although ...
76. Forbidden Science by Richard Milton [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , heavy water and electricity in a test tube. Milton clearly takes the former view, claiming that Cold fusion is the perfect exemplar of the taboo reaction in science. '( p . 36), although this is somewhat undermined by the information that institutions around the world have spent $50-100 million on cold fusion research, and the Japanese government is planning to invest $25 million in a 5 year research programme. If that is being ignored, it doesn't sound too bad to me. Of course there is a genuine controversy and orthodox scientists have generally been hostile to Pons and Fleischmann's work. Milton derides these critics and includes in his thirteen final questions to challenge scientists ...
77. The Stones of Time; Calendars, Sundials, and the Stone Chambers of Ancient Ireland by Martin Brennan (Book Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... beginning, a foray into what will become a fascinating subject of research. Light itself seems to be the most frequent symbol – perhaps this might imply lightning. It is also possible that the Newgrange complex was built in response to something - a period of darkness perhaps, signalled by the absence of Elcmar. This is a theme in the Japanese legend of the Sun goddess hiding in a cave, and the Maya year zero. This is estimated at 3115 BC, very nearly the 3150 BC (witha 100 year variability) assigned to the construction of Newgrange. An earlier complex of mounds at Carrowmore, in the west of Ireland, has been dated to 4200 BC. This ...
78. Gerontology, Environment, and Geological Catastrophism [Journals] [Kronos]
... . These variations in the dipole moment of the geomagnetic field, determined from archeomagnetic intensity studies, are reported as 500 year averages.(16) An increase in field intensity roughly corresponded to the time of the Exodus, and the maximum value (14 x 1025 gauss cm3) occurred between 3000 and 2000 years ago.(17) Japanese and Russian data also imply a cyclic change of the field intensity with a period of the order of 10,000 years. This is in phase with the abrupt climatic change that occurred at the end of the last Ice Age.(18) This concurs with Heraclitus' statement that the world is destroyed in conflagration after every period ...

... descendants migrated back west. Northern Indians from the east New Scientist 8.3 .97, p. 9 The physical appearance of the people of northern India has led to the belief that their ancestry lies with western Caucasoid populations but this is belied by recent genetic studies which indicates that they have much more in common with the Chinese and Japanese to the east. Did apes descend from man?New Scientist 29.3 .97, p. 18 Two Australian researchers, using the molecular clock method of investigating when animal lineages split from each other, have come to the conclusion that humans and chimpanzees diverged later than the age of the earliest hominid biped, suggesting that this ...
